Warner Bros. continued their long-standing tradition of Friday night Comic-Con world premiere of a DC Universe movie by "leaking" the highly anticipated 'Batman: Hush.'
A crowd of about 4,000 people gathered to attend the panel in the famous Ballroom 20 at the 50th annual San Diego Comic-Con.
Soon after the panel, these lucky few got to witness the world premiere of the latest DC Universe offering.
Fans in attendance poured their hearts out on Twitter, with one tweeting, "'Batman: Hush' leaked oh my night just got better," and another saying, "Woop woop, hype. Sitting and waiting for the premiere of Batman Hush. #SDCC2019".
Meanwhile, another fan pointed out the irony of the night: "At the “Batman: Hush” panel right now, at #SDCC50, to a packed Ballroom 20 (4,000 peeps) .... the music while we wait for the show to start is Level 42’s “A Physical Presence.” “Perfected in silence, a physical presence...” Because, “Hush,” I guess? [sic]"

Once the film started, however, it seems at least a little bit of the excitement died down, with some of the fans expressing their disappointment over the movie online.
Many pointed out that certain plot points were unnecessary, and the animation did not seem to impress many either.
One DC fan who was at the premiere wrote, "Batman Hush has changes in it that didn't need to happen, like having bane take crocs place in the kidnapping. like what was the point, did they not want to have to animate a new killer croc or something?"
'Batman: Hush,' which marks the 35th overall film in the DC Universe Animated Original Movies line, is an adaptation of the DC classic comic book series of the same name, and centers on the caped crusader's tussle with the shadowy supervillain who uses Gotham's Rogues Gallery to destroy the Dark Knight and his career as a vigilante, while also targeting on the man behind the mask - Bruce Wayne.
The cast of the film includes Jason O'Mara as Bruce Wayne aka Batman, Jennifer Morrison as Selina Kyle aka Catwoman, Jerry O'Connell as Clark Kent aka Superman, Rebecca Romijn as Lois Lane, Maury Sterling as Thomas Elliot aka Hush and Rainn Wilson as Lex Luthor.
